    You have to expect sometimes resistance to initial NSAID's even after the local infiltration of steroids up to three times .
    I usually insist on avoidance of any kind of wrist activity with or without using muscular force.

    It is caused by traction on common ext origin so rest is mandory to release such traction beside NSIADs , i prefer to make use of initial rest period and add Local coriticotsroids injection , it really makes dramtic improve in begining, plus modificaiton of activities and patient educaiton.
